CAMPAIGN DIARY: Cosmopolitan 200 Sex confessions booklet

You’re a fruity lot, aren’t you? Evidence from Cosmopolitan’s sinsational 200 Sex Confessions booklet points squarely to the fact that our industry lives up to its reputation for hedonistic living.

You’re a fruity lot, aren’t you? Evidence from Cosmopolitan’s

sinsational 200 Sex Confessions booklet points squarely to the fact that

our industry lives up to its reputation for hedonistic living.



Evidently intended to represent a cross-section of the population, the

booklet’s most consistently grubby stories come from a healthy number of

’advertising and marketing executives’ who clearly enjoy engaging in

spontaneously rampant behaviour.



One advertising executive referred to only as ’Tim, 31’ left his

germ-paranoid boss apoplectic after considerately leaving bottom cheek

marks on the glass-top conference table following some extremely rampant

misbehaviour with his girlfriend.



’Brian’, an advertising director, got a little more than he bargained

for after going al fresco in a country field with his girlfriend - and a

passing bull.



And then there’s hopeless braggers like ’advertiser Nick, 27’, who

claims an attractive air stewardess went beyond the call of duty to

offer a far more personal service in the toilet during a business class

trip to New York. ’We had incredible sex,’ he boasts most

unconvincingly. Clearly the daily toil of dreaming up fantastical ways

of advertising dull products has taken its toll on this poor, deluded

creature.



So do you recognise any of these offenders? Or are you yourself guilty

of drinking too much at the office party and eyeing the conference table

appreciatively through hazy beer goggles? Remember that if you must

engage in such debauchery in the agency, your intrepid Diary is bound to

find out about it. Especially if people write in and tell us.
